One possibility to increase the efficiency of classical con-
troller paradigms is to implement substructures with different tasks and
abilities (heterogeneous controller structure). To automatically develop
these structures it is necessary to use a process, that is on the one hand
easy to evolve, and on the other hand rich in different solutions. One
inspiration for such processes can be found in the biological process of
embryogenesis. By using virtual embryogenetical processes in combina-
tion with artificial evolution we develop a novel method for controller
